Community violence, immigration reform and "stand your ground".

Those topics will be part of a civil rights rally at Florida's Capitol Tuesday.

Last month, hundreds of people marched to the Florida Capitol for a rally against the state's "stand your ground" law.

On Tuesday, hundreds of people are again expected at Florida's Capitol to address several issues, including "stand your ground."

"We want to be able to develop a comprehensive dialogue starting from here on and we'll start by having town hall meetings with the legislatures, with the politicians in each county around the state of Florida and that even extends on a national level," said Bishop Gregg Greer of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Several civil rights groups including the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Dream Defenders are expected to take part in the rally.

It's scheduled to begin across the street from the Supreme Court at 9:30.
